Human Rights and Climate Change: Iowa’s Challenges & Opportunities

Human Rights and Climate Change: Iowa’s Challenges & Opportunities  promotional image

In 2009 Center co-founder Burns H. Weston collaborated to create the Climate Legacy Initiative, which explored the human rights implications of climate change, particularly the concept of inter-generational rights and duties.  This series revisits that prescient work and casts a critical eye toward the current urgency of climate change, key challenges, and the impact on human rights from local and global perspectives.
